Busting Up

I've noticed a trend on buying trips, there always seems to be a unique theme of antiques; one trip was sofas, another bookcases, etc. This trip, I've come across an abundance of busts and sculptures. After seeing all the unique displays, and appreciating the wide variety of ways they are show-cased, I see how under-appreciated these pieces are in the home. Incorporating busts and sculpture into decorating, will refreshen your space and update your current displays.

Throw Back to Legends

It's already been a week since Legends and I still can't stop thinking about it. The panels were informative, the windows were inspiring, and the parties were full of excitement. I could not be more thankful for my friend's and colleague's hard work that went into making this year's event truly "one of a kind".

One Of A Kind Windows

This year's Legends event has been a whirlwind of excitement and non-stop entertainment. An iconic statement of the event are the window designs, this years are better than ever. The theme for this year is "One of a Kind", and our windows could not have turned out better, thanks to Robert Stilin, and Nate Berkus.

Robert uses contemporary art to complement the antique furniture. A perfect reading corner for a one of a kind art lover.

Nate utilizes antique furniture from France, Spain, and Italy to set an intimate scene of as if one was looking though a door into someone's well curated home.

Make sure to see all the windows during Legends by visiting lcdqla.com and vote for your favorite design.
